CTrr, Htm alao the Popular Material
What was Drar.
The mee ti :g of property holders in the
Second avetue paving district at the
rooms of th Rock Island Citizens Im
provement association at 8:30 yesterday
afternoon was fairy well attended. Mr.
Fred Hass culled the meeting to order,
and upon hit motion Mr. B. D. Buford
was chosen chairman. Mr. . II. Guyer
was made xecretary upon Mr. Phil
Mitchell's motion. The secretary read
the ordinance adopted by the council Fri
day Dight rel itive to the paving of Sec
ond avenue ith No. 1 cypress blocks,
the understanding at the outset being that
discussion of certain points might occur
as they suggt sted themselves during the
reading. Mr. Phil Mitchell stated that
he had been informed that yellow cypress
was the best and he asked it that mate
rial was implied by No. 1. Mayor
Blanding replied that yellow cypress and
No. 1 were the same, very gummy and
the best quality.
Discussions being in order, Mr. Henry
Krell was the first to take up the issue
against the ccuncil. He appeared to be
in a highly indignant frame with regard
to the aldermanic body, and asserted that
the paving in provement was going up
too far and down too far. He had prop
erty above Nineteenth street, that he did
not think, from the revenue it brought,
would stand the cost of such improve
ment. He bf.dbeen informed, too, that
the grade along Second avenue would
be raised fourteen to eighteen 'inches;
but, being diselled of that idea, with the
assurance of Mayor Blanding, that the
proposition vras not to increase the
grade more th in six inches, be felt easier,
though he thcugbt there ought to be
further efforts to gain the impression of
property holders as to material.
To this remark, Mr. Crubaugh re
marked: "Tien you won't get any ma
terial at all."
Mr. Joseph Rosenflald thought the
property holders ought to employ an
engineer to conduct the paving opera
tions and protoct the property interests.
Mr. Fred Hass expressed his opinion
that the city should provide a competent
and experienced engineer to superintend
the paving. lie believed the preference
of the property holders was for brick, yet
he was not disposed to oppose cypress.
He thought thut all specifications should
be included in the ordinance that pro
posals be adve-tised for and all bids be
accompanied by approved bond.
Capt. T. J. Hobinson stated that he
was present to learn the views and pre
ferences of property holders as to the
nature ot the material to be used. An
expression, he said, had been had in
favor of vitrified brick, based upon ex
haustive inquiries that bad been prose
cuted for months by the Citizens' asso
ciation. He thonght if these wishes
were properly represented to the council
the ordinance would be changed and
brick adopted, ne regarded brick as the
next best material to granite, and much
more economic il, and preferred it to
wood of any kind. He favored the ap
pointment of a committee to examine
pavement in o.her cities with a view to
ascertaining if brick is in any respect a
failuie; if so, the property holders might
be willing to consider cypress or red ce
dar. He movjd the appointment of a
committee of :hree to wait on the city
council at its next meeting and ask that
the ordinance Ihj amended so as to sub
stitute vitrified brick for cypress blocks.
This be though: would be the best man
ner of getting tie matter properly before
the present meeting for discussion and
interchange of tiews.
Mr. L. S. McCabe moved that the com
mittee suggested by Capt. Robinson be
increased to five, and the amendment was
Mr. Phil Mitchell stated that he was
heartily in favor of paving Second avenue.
He believed thet brick was the fovorite
material of property owners, but he was
not opposed to cypress blocks. It was
u'.? desire to disclaim the impression
which had gotten abroad that the Second
avenue property owners were obstruc
tionists, and while he believed the
council had a med to do its duty,
he thought it would have acted more
wisely to have appointed a corns
mittee toinquiie into brick and other
paving material before finally deciding.
There wa3 no public good that did not
embrace some small ill. He would like
to see Second avenue paved, and if no
better and cheaer material than cypress
blocks could be had, he would go in for
Mr. . U. Ouyer was very enthusias
tically in favor of brick, though he took
occasion to say i.hat he believed, as Mr.
Mitchell did, tht.t there was nothing of
the nature of obstructionists about
Second avenue property holders. He
thought, though, that the council did not
consider the sanitary phase of the pav
ing project in its adoption of cypress
blocks, in view of the possible satura
tion of wooden Mocks by animal excre
tions. Mr. David Don said he thought there
were more people in favor of cypress
blocks for paving than those at the
meeting knew of. The more the sub
ject was talked of the more favorable was
the tendency toward cypress blocks. He
thought there were one or two property
holders who had an especial interest in
brick, and were attempting to force it on
the city. He thought wooden blocks lest
noisy than brick or stone, and much
more preferable und endurable.
Mr. Fred Hast said he though Mr. Don
was mistaken as to the noise created by
brick. He thought it Mr. Don was to
investigate he might favor brick, too.
Mr. Don said he spoke from Investiga
tion. He knew what was used la Chi
cago and how pc pular wooden payement
Mr. Anderson, of Chicago, who la in
the paving basin jss, spoke in favor of
brick. In Chicago brick lasted two years
and wood six years. The cypress blocks
had not been used cedar being the ma
terial where wood was employed, the cost
being $1 to $1.20 yer yard.
Mr. P. L. Mitchell gave an instance of
his experience with wooden pavement.
He had been assessed $700 for Nicholson
pavement in front of tome lots in Coving
ton, Ey., and four years after it was put
in it waa worn out and dangerous to
Mr. Joseph Rosen field held that cli
matic influences had great effect on
wooden pavement and that what might
tend to the destruction of pavement in
this city would not in others. In illustra
tion of thia assertion he cited Washings
ton, D. C, where he said wooden pave
ment would not last any time at all.
Capt. Robinson then suggested that the
motion introduced by bim be referred
to a committee to more fully embody the
views of the meeting as to an investiga
tion by the council previous to finally de
ciding upon the pavement to be adopted,
and moved that the property holders de
clare themselves in favor of paving Sees
ond avenue from Fourteenth to Twenti
eth streets. The motion carried almost
unanimously. Chairman Buford named
as such committee: Messrs. T. J. Robin
son. E. H. Guyer. Phil Mitchell. L. S
McCabe and Joseph Rosenfield, to which
Mr. David Don was afterward upon mo
The committee retired for deliberation
and returned with the following resolu
tions, which upon motion of P. L. Mitch
ell were adopted:
Whereas, An ordinance lias been
passed by the city council for the pav
ing of Second avenue with cypress blocks
as to the sanitary fitness of which grave
doubts are entertained; and
Whereas, In a matter of such vast
importance to the city's future, and in
volving so large an expenditure of
money, the greatest deliberation should
be exercised in determining the proper
material, in adopting the most approved
specifications, and in securing com
petitive bidding by proper provisions in
the ordinance for extensive advertising,
which provisions are entirely omitted
from the recently adopted ordinance;
Whereas, We are anxious that what
ever paving is put down shall be so free
from objection on the score of health,
durability, smoothness and cost, that it
shall be a lasting argument for the exten
sion of the paving system. Therefore,
Resolved, That we, the abutting prop
erty owners on Second avenue do hereby
respectfully petition the mayor and alder
men not to allow the said ordinance
as at present draughted to become a
law; that the council be asked to ap
point a proper committee to accom
pany a like committee of property own
ers, charged with the duty of examining
samples of street paving in neighboring
cities, and to report as to each, the sani
tary fitness, the durability, the cost, the
smoothness, the freedom from noise, the
expense of repairs and renewals, and also
which payment would involve least ex
penditure for labor and material outside
Retolved, That from previous investi
gation made by us, we are up to the pres
ent time favorable to the adoption of
vitrified bruk pavement, but are willing
to abide by the deliberate conclusion of
the council formed upon the investigation
Mr. Mitchell offered a motion that the
committee lay before the council all in
formation derived for the investigations
on the subject of paving. The motion
being adopted, Wm. Jackson's name was
added to the committee.
Mr. Phil Mitchell offered a suggestion
which was accepted, that should the
council respect the sentiment of the reso
lutions, the chair appoint three Second
avenue property holders to accompany
the aldermanic committee.
Mayor Blanding said the municipal
situation was one of two alternatives: If
the mayor refrain from signing the ordi
nance it will be open for reconsideration
at the next meeting; but if not reconsid
ered will become a law. If approved by
the mayor it can be repealed at any time
before operations under its provisions are
When asked as to his opinion of cypress
blocks, the mayor spoke at length in
favor of it and gave his experience with
it as exceedingly satisfactory.1 lie looked
upon it as the best material for paving
purposes owing to its toughness, inter
locked grain and durability.
